Looking for an exciting way to get the whole family active? The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Kid's Marathon’s mission is to instill running as a part of a healthy lifestyle in our kids at an early age, which is why we have a 1-mile kids race. It's the perfect distance to introduce kids to running. 

 

*All courses are very well marked.  There are mile markers for each distance event, directional signs for course splits and TURNAROUND signs for course turnarounds.  Course splits and course turnarounds will be manned with an operations staff member who will typically be making announcements on a megaphone.  Course turns are indicated with traffic cones and usually (not always) have police units, volunteers and/or staff members.  Traffic on courses is managed by our law enforcement partners, but no roads are promised to be closed to all traffic.  Runners should be aware of their surroundings: the course, applicable signage, vehicles, staff, volunteers, and police officers.

*Runners are required to complete the Quarter at an average 22:00 minute per mile pace and the 5K at an average 24:00 minute per mile pace.  Kids have a total of 30 minutes to complete the kids mile.
